GOP: we'll repeal health reform

First, they're admitting they can't stop the public option -- they're already planning for the next phase.

Second, they're wildly unrealistic regarding their prospects in Congress. As noted recently, the Democrats aren't going to lose Congress anytime soon.

Third, it is appallingly stupid strategy. 70-80 percent of the country wants the public option so they can be liberated from the tyranny of corrupt private insurers, and if the Dems give that freedom, and then the Republicans go on record as wanting to take it away, the GOP will never win another election cycle.
